|Woodward Defines Change Needed on November 7 on '60 Minutes' Tonight
by Bob Geiger | Oct 1 2006
While some would say we need additional evidence that the Iraq war is prosecuted by a bunch of Republican liars as much as we need more proof that disgraced GOP Congressman Mark Foley is a pervert, it's still important that everyone catch tonight's '60 Minutes' to see journalist Bob Woodward spell it out even more.
In his new book, 'State of Denial,' Woodward spells out in agonizing detail how George W. Bush and the Republican party have lied to the American people on the level of violence in Iraq and, in particular, the intensity of attacks against U.S. troops.
"It’s getting to the point now where there are eight, nine-hundred attacks a week. That's more than 100 a day. That is four an hour attacking our forces," says Woodward, of a fact that has clearly been intentionally hidden from Americans by Team Bush.
In addition, Woodward details that, no matter what nonsense Bush, Dick Cheney and Donald Rumsfeld spew daily about how great things are going in Iraq, it has indeed gone to hell in a hand basket and will get worse, not better, in 2007.
"The truth is that the assessment by intelligence experts is that next year, 2007, is going to get worse and, in public, you have the president and you have the Pentagon [saying], 'Oh, no, things are going to get better,'" Woodward tells Mike Wallace tonight . "Now there’s public, and then there’s private. But what did they do with the private? They stamp it secret. No one is supposed to know."
